Activist events. In January.

Portland Resistance Calendar is a collection of social justice events in the Portland area (and sometimes, within driving distance). This post is specifically for events that are in the month of January 2018 and later. 

 Links here go to pdxactivist.org, "a collaborative community calendar ... to move information about activism and resistance in Portland out of corporate silos like Facebook. This is a place to share ... events ... open to public participation."

Thanks, KBOO members & contributors, for your support. And thanks to Ismoon for research, and Joe Frazier for photos. 

This month's photo is from the Womens March last January.

Interested in getting your events on this calendar?

  1. See if your event has already been listed.
    Check https://pdxactivist.org/events. If it is (but not exactly to your liking), you can edit it by going to its event page. 
  2. Slurp from a Facebook URL, or add it old school.
    From https://pdxactivist.org/sources/new you can slurp directly with a web address (most of the time). If not, you can add it from https://pdxactivist.org/events/new.
  3. Check for the venue name & add it to the event page.
    The location doesn't get automagically slurped because there's a databased list of location venues. You'll need to add it -  most venues are already in the database - you can search https://pdxactivist.org/venues and just copy/paste (which somehow grabs the database magic) from that venues search into the venue name on the event entry page.
  4. Make sure that the description describes the social justice aspect(s).
    Everything on the Calendar comes from pdxactivist... but not everything from pdxactivist goes on the Calendar.
  5. If things change, please update pdxactivist.org!
  6. You can also message us directly via Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/pdxResist/
